The band took collective responsibility for the financial problems we encountered because we wanted to carry on where we left off.

The three that left thought they could run away from those responsibilities and put what they earn into their pockets instead. take the money and run.

Anant is absolutely right. It was a short-term solution to a long term problem.

We figured it would be better to go through that suffering and come out the other end with a long term plan which will set us up for the future. A plan that is starting to show rewards this year.

Which is why our ex singer started to use the name of the band he left 7 years ago. He is trying to cash in on the good will the band has built with our fans over the last few years.

It's also true that both aldi and the tambourine player aren't the brightest people you've ever met, so I think stupidity has a lot to do with it.

My thoughts exactly. Shitting on your friends just so you can fix your financial situation isn't the mark of an intelligent person. Morality and intelligence cannot be separated when it comes to decisions like that. If it's immoral, it's stupid....

“For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance, he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.” - Robert Jastrow, 'God and The Astronomers'
